Juried Group Show curated by Claudia Corletto
On View March 15 – March 26, 2017
MEZCLA features a selection of works in a variety of media by artists who identify as Latinx or Hispanic.
Artists were invited to submit their cultural narrative using a material and style reflective of their own personal work. MEZCLA is strongly rooted in the principle that Hispanic and Latinx artists should be the only authors of their own narrative, culture, and identity.
About the impetus for the show, Corletto writes, “It’s very cute for some of these spaces to pay homage to magical realism in Latin America, but enough already. We exist, we’re here and we drive this country.”
MEZCLA features work by:
Rodrigo Dorfman, Nora Hernandez, Sara Rose Perez, Rebecca Ibarra, Nico Amortegui, Lety Alvarez, Gaby Rozenberg, Peter Marin, Zipaktli, Stef Bernal-Martinez, Georges Le Chevallier, Renzo Ortega, Miriam Ximil, Cornelio Campos, Jorge Zuluaga, Joshua Graupera, Luis G Ardila, Adrian Guerreo, Donkeeboy, Sylvia Roman, Andrea Celeste, Vurse One, Nora Phillips, and Mike Guillen
